    bup ifo vob files convert to avi
    Hi there,

    My friend burnt a mini disc dvd of my band and its all bup ifo and vob files. How can I convert to avi to post on Facebook? I've seen alot of this topic but I really don't want to pay for a program since this will prob be a one time thing. Freeware (that is not spam and actually works) would be awesum. Is there any online apps I could just load these files into and convert them for free?? I'm looking for the simplest most effective route. Thanks in advance I appreciate any advice. OH BTW I'm using a Macbook w/ Os x

    You shouldn't need to convert it to AVI, you should be able to convert it to mp4 for facebook too AFAIK.

    To convert to mp4, just use handbrake.

    np. Worst case scenario - if for some bizarre reason facebook won't take the mp4, you can use another free tool - mpegstreamclip to convert the mp4 to avi (since handbrake doesn't do straight to avi any more).
